Al,

I reinstalled XPMCE w/SP-3 and updates. I then installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Service Pack 1 from your link and rebooted. I used the “rtlsdr_scanner-setup-win32.exe” script to install RTLSDR Scanner. When I run the application I now get the RTLSDR Scanner command window briefly and then nothing happens. I did a screen capture of the XPMCE command window. It says:

RTLSDR Scanner

Traceback :

I installed the 64 bit version of Microsoft Visual C++ in Windows 7 but still get almost the same error message when I run RTLSDR Scanner. The Windows 7 command window says:

RTLSDR Scanner

Sorry to make all this work for you but I hope this information helps. The good news is I got the adapter cable for the tuner today and since they were both ordered at the same time I should get the tuner in the next few days.

Thanks for all the timely feedback.

Sincerely,

Pete
